Corps Day Formal at the Citadel

Lorelai and her roommate Nancy got here late Thursday night so that they could have Friday to get ready for their dates with a couple of handsome cadets from The Citadel. They were in a rush to get out of the house so I only got a few quick snapshots.

Lor showed me a few that they took with her camera during the event and it looks like they had a lot of fun. I'll have to get copies. She says that she's never before been out with such a gentleman as this young man. He must have been raised by a southern belle.

The boys would have come to pick up the girls but they had an afternoon parade and there wasn't enough time to drive the 45 minutes out to our house between the parade and dinner reservations.

It isn't unusual for young ladies to drive themselves to campus. Citadel rules and curfews can cause glitches sometimes. Once we drove my best friend's boyfriend out after curfew in the trunk of Hank's car. LORELAI...don't you EVER do something like that!
A Friday afternoon parade is something to see, especially in the springtime when pretty girls are sitting in the stands in their preppy best to watch the young men (and now women). I guess there are some preppy boys sitting in the stands too. Sometimes I forget that there are female cadets also.

  3. My husband attended the Citadel, this brings back so many memories of going to hops! Every year we keep saying we want to make it back for Corps weekend, but there is always something going on that prevent us. Maybe this year for Homecoming!
